In his glory days, David Hasselhoff was an international sex symbol. I know… it never stops shocking us either.
Whether strutting his stuff in jeans on ‘Knight Rider,’ wearing the tightest leather pants on German singing shows, or rocking the red swim trunks on the beach in ‘Baywatch,’ boatloads of fans swooned at the sight of his manly assets. [gag]
Now comes news that The Hoff is capitalizing on his well-endowed reputation by taking on a “meaty role” in an episode of the upcoming ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ Season 4.
According to TVGuide, Hasselhoff will play the part of Dondo, a well-endowed former porn star who is now making major coin by producing sleazy girl-on-girl adult films.
It turns out that, back in the day, Dondo “was given a major career boost by Luanne (Dendrie Taylor) and gets involved in a little dirty work in her memory.” Hasselhoff’s episode will air in October, and he joins an impressive Season 4 guest cast roster that includes Danny Trejo, Rockmond Dunbar, LaMonica Garrett, Niko Nicotera and Ray McKinnon.
Since 2006 Hoff’s been acting as a TV talent show judge, first on ‘America’s Got Talent’ and then on its British counterpart. His most recent acting credits include a cameo in the movie ‘Hop,’ a reprisal of his role as Dr. William ‘Snapper’ Foster on CBS soap opera ‘The Young and the Restless,’ and a part in upcoming horror sequel ‘Piranha 3DD.’
Could this guest role on ‘Sons of Anarchy’ be the big acting comeback Hoff’s been waiting for? Playing a total sleazebag totally revitalized Neil Patrick Harris’s career after all.
‘Sons of Anarchy’ Season 4 is due to premiere in September on FX.
